, a well-known, kind of, you know, former presidential level candidate for the united states. >> rose: we continue our conversation about the hearings today in washington request are with michael gordon of the "new york times." michael, you know secretary clinton and you also know senator kerry who is likely to be confirmed as secretary of state. will there be a difference? i think there will be a lot of continuity on substance. she had a persona as a global figure and a certain degree of charisma that i think she'l he'll lack. and she did play a role as the obama administration would assert in restoring the american image, but i think there will be more points of continuity than discontinuity. >> rose: how do you assess her four years? >> >> well, i think she was good at restoring the american image. i think she trafd a lot. she went to 112 countries. i think she had some success in asia. but i don't think she or the obama administration has many notable diplomatic accomplishiments. the syria problem is-- seemed. the middle east situation seems pretty much stalled out. can. >> rose: do you believe benghazi will be a cirrus law on her record? >> i think it is a flaw. but i don't think it will be a lasting flaw. it was a systemic breakdown. there was an independent review tha

, orrin hatch. a trio of perpetrators who treat the united states treasury as if it were a cash-and-carry annex of corporate america. the "times" story described how amgen got a huge hidden gift from unnamed members of congress and their staffers. they slipped an eleventh hour loophole into the new year's eve deal that kept the government from going over the fiscal cliff. and when the sun rose in the morning, there it was a richly embroidered loophole for amgen that will cost taxpayers -- that's you and me -- a cool half a billion dollars. yes, half a billion dollars. amgen is the world's largest biotechnology firm, a drug manufacturer that sells a variety of medications. the little clause secretly sneaked into the fiscal cliff bill gives the company two more years of relief from medicare cost controls for certain drugs used by patients on kidney dialysis. the provision didn't mention amgen by name, but according to reporters lipton and sack, the news that it had been tucked into the fiscal cliff deal "was so welcome that the company's chief executive quickly relayed it to investmen

become green card holders that will then remove them from the united states? i also want add something to this conversation on enforcement. it is disappointing to hear both the senate and the president want to leave with making or kind of uplifting this mix that our borders are not secure and been forced and has three the number one priority. i think that comes from a place of fear because american knows undocumented immigrants. america shares both neighborhoods and schools and many public spaces with undocumented immigrants, so there is this notion that undocumented immigrants are criminals and dangerous and so we have to lead with enforcement first. a really that is not a problem. the border is more secure than it has ever been before. $18 billion was spent last year. i think it is disappointing to hear that. i do think there are some key differences between the plans the president has outlined and the senate bipartisan framework. i think a lot of it has to do the different politics. on the senate side, needing to secure 60 votes and making sure this is bipartisan and republicans can feel like they can spend political capital on this, and that this is the right thing
